It's a valid question and one that any woman thinking of becoming a surrogate or couple considering choosing surrogacy as a fertility option should ask. To put it simply, no. Women who have never had a successful pregnancy are not candidates to be a surrogate. This fact upsets and frustrates many women and understandably so. There are plenty of women who do not want kids of their own, but would like to help another family by carrying their child.

But it is important to look at it from the perspective of the couple and the fertility clinic. There is no evidence that a woman who has never successfully carried a child to term is capable of doing so. Surrogacy is very expensive and the couple has a lot of emotions riding on the process. It is understandable that they would prefer a woman who has successfully shown that she is capable of carrying a pregnancy to term and giving birth to a healthy child.

The concerns of the clinic or fertility doctors will be similar. It is unknown if a woman who has never been pregnant will have any unexpected complications along the way. What's more, it is impossible to determine if any complications may prevent the woman from becoming pregnant in the future. Therefore, this rule is also intended to help the surrogate mother.

Finally, women who do not have children of their own or who have never given birth do not know how they will react emotionally after giving birth. While many women may believe they would not have a problem giving the child to the parents, there really is no way for them to know for sure after nine months of pregnancy. Again, this protects the parents as well as the surrogate in the event that the surrogate carrier would not be able to easily give the child to the parents.

When it comes down to it, it is in the best interests of all involved that women who have never been pregnant not become surrogate carriers. There are a lot of emotions involved in this process, not to mention a hefty amount of money, and with no real way of knowing for sure that a women is capable of carrying a pregnancy to term and giving the child to the parents at birth, clinics and agencies will not accept women who have not been pregnant.
